Reliable pressure measurements are often needed in quality control to document fulfillment of safety requirements and function of the product.
In the pharmaceutical and process industry, it may be of great importance that a process occurs at a defined pressure.
To ensure that the measurements can be carried out with a sufficient accuracy and to be able to document the reliability of the measurements, the measuring equipment must be calibrated regularly by comparison to a reference standard with a known uncertainty.
The Pressure Laboratory offers calibration of instruments for measuring pressure in the range up to 200 bar gas pressure and 1000 bar with oil as pressure medium.
Differential pressure transducers can be calibrated in the range up to 200 bar differential pressure at a total pressure of maximum 200 bar. Furthermore, we offer calibration of weights in the range 1 mg to 20 kg.
As pressure standards, the laboratory uses dead-weight testers traceable to internationally recognized metrology institutes. For calibration of weights we use state-of-the-art comparator balances and reference weights traceable to international standards.
We perform advisory assignments, business-oriented courses and are a valuable partner in development projects. We perform measurement engineering advice, e.g. on calculation of measurement uncertainty.
We regularly invite industry and laboratories to participate in accredited intercomparisons - see proficiency testing.
